Chris is very knowledgeable about the Buddhist religion and way of life. I liked his quiet style and clear explanations. There could have been more on the history of Chiang Mai.

El tour es largo y puede resultar cansador pero vale la pena. Es muy amplio en contenido y de recorren muchos lugares, por ende anda con hambre ya que probarás distintas comidas típicas a lo largo del tour. El guia se nota que sabe mucho y le dedica mucho tiempo a su trabajo.

Charin is really good tour guide, he will share his knowledge with you and even try to respond to everyone's questions. I liked that there were stops to buy/drink water and use toilets.
